FAA Responds to ARSA Concerns on Order 8130.21H
On Dec. 2, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) responded to a letter ARSA sent on Nov. 19 concerning the prohibition on early compliance of FAA Order 8130.21H, specifically the ability to use the revised FAA Form 8130-3 before its Feb. 1, 2014 effective date.
(See previous story).

In its response, the agency concurred with ARSA's assessment that early compliance is in the best interest of the industry, including early use of revised FAA Form 8130-3. The FAA is notifying all field offices of this decision.

LATEST NEWS


Foreign Repair Station Drug Testing Rule at OMB
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is currently reviewing a proposed rule from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that will impact foreign repair stations. The abstract states:

"This rulemaking is required by the FAA Modernization and Reauthorization Act of 2012. It would require controlled substance testing of some employees working in repair stations located outside the United States. The intended effect is to increase participation by companies outside of the United States in testing of employees who perform safety critical functions and testing standards similar to those used in the repair stations located in the United States. This action is necessary to increase the level of safety of the flying public."

An OMB review usually takes 30 to 60 days, after which the rule can be returned to the FAA for further action or for posting as a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register. Rest assured the association will keep close tabs on this action.
